Tips to help your family sit less and move more

We’ve got a whole library of practical tips to help you and your family get moving! Keep it fun by trying out some of our challenges, too.


  • Make sure you get to put your feet up at some point too! Rest is also important to recovery, particularly if you are on your feet or on the go all day every day.

  • Set aside a morning for a brisk walk around the lake with the family - the kids can take their bikes or scooters.

  • On long car trips be aware of screen time and switch off for a set time. Play fun games like making words out of other cars' number plates, 'I spy', or you can all sing along to music (making sure to change the rhyming words to make it a funny song).

  • Family walks are a great way to be active while spending time talking together as a family.

  • Remember, doing any physical activity is better than none! Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family does vigorous physical activity.
